Each class has a mandatory dress code. Dancers are issued a warning the first week they are without proper attire. The second week they will be asked to audit the class until the proper attire has been acquired. See the Class Attire web page for details.
ATTENDANCE & PUNCTUALITY
Weekly attendance is essential. Students who arrive more than 10 minutes late will not be able to enter class. Doors will be locked. Tardiness is a disruption to the learning environment for both the students in class and the late dancer. Chronic absences and tardiness are subject to performance privileges being revoked. If your going to be late or absent, please contact the studio as soon as possible at or 833-653-6660.
MISSED & MAKE-UP CLASSES
PMDI does not offer make-up classes for absences. We have an entire MAKE-UP WEEK scheduled during the dance year. During this week all dancers may attend a dance class on the schedule that they are qualified to join. While not ideal, if a dancer needs to withdraw from classes for a short period of time, a $25 administrative hold fee will be charged. If a dancer has to sit out the session due to medical issues or injuries, PMDI will work directly with dance family on a case by case basis.
Sample Classes are a great way for your dancer to try out a class before registering. To purchase a Sample Class log in to your Studio Portal and visit the Online Store. Please purchase all Sample Classes before attending class.
If you enroll for classes on the same day as your Sample Class, the $25 will be credited towards your tuition. Credit does not apply if you register after the day of your Sample Class.
STUDIO CLOSINGS & INCLEMENT WEATHER
Studio closings will be posted on website and notices will be sent via email and/or text . You may also call the studio or email us for the latest update.
TUITION & LATE FEES
Class deposits (1st and last month's tuition) are due before the start of every program. Monthly payments are due on the last day of each month and will be automatically withdrawn from your account. Declined or late funds, and returned checks will be a assessed $35 charge. PMDI has the right to refuse class participation for anyone that has not submitted tuition payment.
